Modular building specialist Caledonian has won two large school projects under the Department for Education (DfE) frameworks in quick succession worth £38m
Contracts for Haygrove School in Somerset and The Sir Frederick Gibberd College in Essex were awarded to Caledonian under DfE frameworks.
Caledonian will create a new £29m secondary school at the Sir Frederick Gibberd College at the site of the former Passmore School in Harlow, Essex. It will comprise a 1,200-place secondary school built over three storeys.
Work at Haygrove School in Bridgwater will see Caledonian components replace the main school building with new classrooms. Construction work will be undertaken while the school remains open.
Caledonian Modular chief executive Paul Lang said: “Haygrove and SFG are both large projects, which, alongside our other recent new business wins, underpin our future growth strategy.
“We have worked closely with the DfE and the schools, as we do on all our education projects, to deliver a modern, efficient teaching spaces that will open up further opportunities for young people in the area.”
Both schools will incorporate factory installed concrete floors to deliver an acoustically compliant and durable environment for occupants and up to 96% of the work on each module is to be completed by the modular firm in its factory before being delivered to site.
